Assemblies at George School are different. They will probably challenge your opinions and worldviews, inspire you, and give you and your friends a lot to talk about.

American activist and former United States military analyst, Daniel Ellsberg, visited George School on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 to speak with students and alumni. He participated in a discussion with history teacher Aaron Good about his new book The Doomsday Machine, Vietnam, and other key moments in American history.

Daniel is known for causing a political controversy in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a collection of top-secret, classified documents highlighting the American government’s decision-making during the Vietnam War. He was charged with conspiracy and theft, but was never convicted. Daniel’s story was the basis for the 2017 Steven Spielberg film The Post.
